    I think I posted this here before...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaDt3AJQ98c

    This sugar connection has been out there for quite some time. In fact, when DH was DX'd with cancer some 7 years ago, it was the first bit of info I came across on the web...(not this link however)...

    The thing is... it seems, the average consumer WANTS to consume crap. Sugar is a hard habit to kick. And yes, I agree, the industries that profit from this mass consumption will do what they can to keep the habits running.

    Have you seen the High Fructose Corn Syrup adds lately??? OMG! Deer in headlights....

        my mom had her first bout at the age of 30 when she was pregnant with me, it stayed away for 25 years and then proceeded to kill her within 2 months of reappearing at the age of 55. She was heavy into the CW of eating healthy, cutting sat fat and making sure to have enough whole grains.
        I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

          i'm convinced that eliminating sugar and grain (which i did about 6 mos ago) will help prevent a recurrence (and improve health in general). i would never get another sunburn, but i am torn about whether or not to avoid sun///slathering on the sunscreen. even wonder if the chemicals in the sunscreen might be contributing to more skin cancers in younger people. love to exercise outdoors and hang at the pool and beach.

            I'm torn on the sunscreen thing too Cristy. Possibly skin cancer is caused by not getting enough sun the whole year round and then suddenly getting too much of it? Maybe something to do with Vitamin D deficiency?

              I'm doing a lot of medical research right now, and I really need the wild caught fish or grass fed beef industry to pay for my fellowship in evolutionary medicine.

                I just saw an update on CNN that said: Sugar, not just salt, linked to hypertension.

                This is old news but good to see it on a mainstream news channel.

                  When selecting a sunscreen, IMHO, and based on my own research, select one that does NOT have retinal of any sort in it.

                  It's a buzz word for anti aging. However, more and more studies are coming out that any form of it should not be a day time product (should be night time only)...

                  And unfortunately, cosmetic companies jump on the band wagon of consumerism and add it to promote sales. I suspect in the next 10 years we will be hearing about the overabundance of skin damage done with product that reacts to UV.

                  And for me it's a personal preference to only use physical sun block as opposed to chemical. Which I find I react to via a rash in the sun. Something about burning chemicals into my skin that seems like a bad idea. And I don't care about FDA approval. They approve a lot of horrifying crap.

                      Dr. Gundry (at his seminar and he mentions it in his book) has also stated that cancer cells feast off of the sugar in people's bodies. He has helped people rid themselves of skin cancer based on dietary changes (eliminating grains).

                      Re: sunscreen: I asked him specifically about sunscreen and he pretty much stated that if you have the right amount of vitamins and minerals, your body will synthesis it's own sun protection. A large % of skin cancer appears on non-sun exposed areas thus lending more truth to the OP's statement.

                        This guy has the cure for cancer. I know it seems hard to believe, but I've read testimonials from several people on his website that have been cured. It's a free recipe.
                        SAQ: I have to be a little skeptical of this guy's claims. To start with, he observed red patches on his skin, which might have been some other problem entirely. To diagnose yourself at home with a pregnancy kit seems a little bit sketchy, as well. When the red patches went away, he assumed he was "cured"; but as he wasn't properly diagnosed initially, there's really no way to be sure of that, either.

                        I really don't think it would hurt you to eat peppers, garlic and all the other stuff (except the bread); but I really do believe that doctors and medical knowledge have their place. It would really be a tragedy if somebody upon reading this article delayed medical treatment that might have been helpful for them

                          Did you read the testimonials from the numerous other people who have been cured though? There is no cure for cancer.. that comes from the pharmaceutical companies. All I know is that no Doctor has ever been able to help me. Most of what I've been told about my health issues has been wrong. Kelley has helped me with something that nobody else could.

                              I just found I can get that book through my uni. Cheers for this.

                                Yea . . its pretty scarry stuff, i was 21 and a junior in college, luckly it was all removed surgically, but i've removed various pre-cancer legions since then . . It gives me a certain amount of paranoia about the sun. For instance, when driving if i can feel the sun on my arm i move my arm into the shade. It's like i can feel the burning . . .

                                Well this is just anecdotal, but i grew up in the Florida keys, i got sun all the time, all of my summer jobs were outdoors, my father is a charter boat captain and we were out on the water all the time. I doubt i was ever deficient in sun. I did however get very bad sunburns from time to time (boils on the skin etc) Also, my malignancy was in the area that i got my boils (shoulder / back)
